This is the local getaway booze cruise. Yes the ship is old and small compared to the destination cruises, but this ship is all about getting away for a couple of days. Keep that in mind when going on this ship. My wife and I just sailed this week. Embarkation and debarkation were easy as can be. Arrive when you are supposed to and you get on the ship very quickly. I think the room was ready in about one hour and our luggage was there within 2 hours. We were able to debark quickly at each port, I think the earlier you go the better. Final day debarking was quick, however we did the late time and enjoyed breakfast first. We had a cabin with porthole. The steward was good and he asked us how often we wanted the room cleaned. We filled out a form and the room was straightened up each morning and evening. The cabin was plenty big for the two of us. The bathroom is actually pretty roomy for a cruise ship. The water pressure on the shower was excellent. There is no luxury here but I think the room was plenty good for interior booking price. You get what you pay for. The food was very good. The portions in the dining room are small, so if you are hungry make sure you order a couple of things. The service was pretty good, a little slow sometimes. We did anytime dining so we had a different server for each meal. The buffet food is mostly good, but some of the dishes were not great. It's just regular buffet food. The pizza counter was actually very good. The Guy Burger joint is great. The pool and hot tub are small and did not look fun. I never went in. I think if I went on the ship intending to swim and lounge at the pool I would be disappointed. The entertainment was pretty good. No where near Disney level, which is the last cruise I went on. They had lots of games during the day which were usually fun. The main shows were OK. I did not care for the Divas show, it was loud and annoying. The Rock Show was much better. The bands / solo performers around the ship were usually pretty good, but not really worth going out of your way for. The comedians were excellent. We even had a close up magician come by our dining table twice. I did not attend any art events or bingo, so I cannot comment on that. The cruise director seemed to be a fairly engaging person, and most of the Fun Squad staff were fun to be around. I did not play any casino games, however the casino looked small and unimpressive. Also the bar next to the casino was sometimes the only bar open late and it was no fun having to smell the smokers. The ship had too many elevators not working when we were on board, which was very annoying. I know it is not that far to walk, but I really think they need to do a better job maintaining the lifts. Just an annoying complaint is that on port days none of the bars on level 9 were open and there were no servers, just the one up on the Lido deck, which was very busy. They should operate one bar on deck 9 just so those that don't want to go into port can easily get drinks. We also got the Cheers package and it was totally worth it. The best thing is you just order pretty much whatever you want. You can try drinks and if you don't like it, no problem just order something else. Also you can get as many water bottles, energy drinks, soda, and specialty coffees that you want. We spaced out our drinking so we never got drunk, however you certainly could if you wanted to. Most of the drinks are plenty strong. I think expectations are important when going on this cruise. If you expect a Disney/Destination cruise experience you might be a little disappointed as this is not a Luxury ship. If you go to have fun and eat and drink for 4 days, you will have a great time.

Just got back from the Sunday-Thursday Carnival Imagination cruise to Catalina and Ensenada. This was our 4th or 5th trip on this cruise in addition to other cruises that were more high end. The cruise has a nickname; "booze cruise" and it is accurate if you are young and looking to party. If you are new to cruising, you will have a great time. If you are looking for rest and relaxation, you may want to consider other options. PRO: Overall staff was friendly, accommodating and good at their job. Haydee was our primary server in the Pride Dining Room (anytime dining) and she was fantastic. Very warm and hospitable. Old school style cruise server. The food was mediocre at best in the dining room and inexpensive Downtown Vegas style buffet on the Lido deck. This was a great example of "you get what you pay for." We were looking to economize on this cruise and were willing to accept an interior cabin. We upgraded for slightly more money to a room with port holes and it was a good alternative to a cabin with a large window. We were in room E1 and were satisfied. Check in was easy. We spent under $250 on our sign and sail card including gratuities. Again, we were very aware of our budget and were able to keep it that way. CON: Internet was pricey and horrible. Very slow and limited. Although the room was adequate and the steward was friendly (Wayan), he was limited to freshening up our cabin to only once a day unless specifically asked. This is a big change to the personal level of attention experienced cruisers are used to. To me, it says that Carnival has cut back on staff and therefore, the steward does not have time to take care of the guest in a way they once could. Public restrooms frequently needed attention. A subtle clue to the lack of personnel was the lack of trash cans and crew members in the public areas. A lack of trash cans says that there are not enough people to keep them empty and the ship tidy. Meal portions were small and the number of courses were limited from previous. We had a bad experience on one of the nights because the waiter was not supported by other staff and was overworked. It was not his fault but again, speaks to the lack of staff. The Maitre D noticed that we were not happy and made great amends to make up for it. That is where Haydee really shined. Again, not the original servers fault. Our room was ok but my daughter and son-in laws room (R140) was in poor condition with rust, mold and mildew in the bathroom. The bed was made up with stained yellow sheets and the bed, including the pull out bunk, was very uncomfortable. They complained that the walls were thin and they could hear everything coming from other cabins. we also had the experience of smelling the horrible odor of sewage when we disembarked into Catalina and Ensenada. We could smell it in E1 but it was very strong as you came out of the ship. In Ensenada, the photographers held up the line with each passenger so they could take numerous photos for later sale. Each time the line was held up, we would have to breathe in the odor. The photogs should have been positioned elsewhere so we could get away from the smell quickly. Last but not least, I was witness to a near violent episode between passengers in the wee hours of the morning on the Lido Deck. Although it was not surprising, given the alcohol and volatile guests, security failed to arrive even though they were called by another crew member at the Pizza Pirate. This could have been very bad and I had to get involved to keep things from escalating further. Overall, I think this may have been our last time on this cruise. Carnival seems to have cut corners with staffing and the destinations are not appealing. Gratuities are preset and added to your bill regardless of the level of service. That can kill incentive to go above and beyond and tells the guest that they are required to subsidize the crew members salary so Carnival can save money. Overall, I like Carnival but this time only gets 2 stars. Read Less

The two Carnival ships that do the short three and four day sails out of Los Angeles are old. So old, in fact, that there are very few balcony rooms. But looking beyond the vintage of the ship(s), my wife and I like these cruises. Here are my notes on our latest Imagination cruise. First, embarkation and debarkation were smooth as silk. Carnival turned this ship around twice a week, and they have it down to an art. Second, we liked our interior cabin. It was good size, the bedding and mattress were nice, and the bathroom was quite large compared to similar inside bathrooms we have encountered on other ships. Third, the food was good. The main dining room courses were consistently well prepared and presented. The Guy Fieri burgers up by the pool were always fresh, hot, and bursting with flavor. Even the pizza at the 24 hour pizza counter was well done. These three things on the Imagination were generally better than their counterparts on Princess, Norwegian, and HAL cruises we have sailed on. Could this all be because there are no pay-extra speciality dining restaurants on the Imagination, and thus Carnival gives its all to the everyday dining? Who knows. Finally, the entertainment on the ship was also good, particularly the comedians. Not surprising, I guess, given the huge amount of talent available in the LA area from which the ships sail.

I'll never cruise with Carnival again. Let me just say, I only chose Carnival because I was vacationing with a group of eight people, and the majority chose Carnival. Personally, I would have chosen another cruise line... But that's neither here nor there. Carnaval nickel-and-dime for everything. You can't even get up soft drink on the ship without being charged. Other Cruise Lines don't do that. Alcohol yes... But not a soda. Room service is free...until 10 p.m. Then you're charged. This is just another example of the nickel-and-diming! Also, the souvenir pictures they take of you costs $14 each. Yet another example of nickel-and-diming. For the amount you pay for the cruise you should at least be able to get one picture for free. And the others should be less than $14. Our room was decent. Nothing to write home about. The bathroom so so. But I wasn't expecting much. Once I was in the shower I realize that it wasn't clean the way it should have been. There were dirty fingerprints in the shower. Keep in mind that this was the first night we boarded the ship. Neither I or my roommate had yet taken a shower. So these weren't our fingerprints. Thankfully I brought my own Lysol and cleaned the bathroom myself. That's the only way I knew it would be clean. FYI they don't do a very good job at cleaning your rooms. When we'd leave and come back in the evening, the only thing they did was make your bed and gave you towels... IF AND ONLY IF they're left on the floor. Otherwise they would straighten out the towels that was already there. They didn't vacuum and they didn't change the sheets. Our Last Night of the cruise my party and I went to Pride restaurant. We were told that we could bring in our own bottles of wine. We were also told that there would be a cork fee of $30 if they had to remove the corks. However, if we removed them ourselves there would be no charge. Our server offered us a bucket of ice for our wine. At the very end before serving us dessert, our server told us that we will be charged $30 for a cork fee. Be reminded that they never opened any bottles for us. As a matter of fact two of our bottles were screw tops. We asked to speak with the manager. He arrived at our table with and overt attitude. He wouldn't allow us to explain our situation... And went on to tell us that we were being charged for drinking our wine and their establishment. Hmmm... that's not a cork fee. He never let us get a word in edgewise. He told us that these rules were in the contract. But that's a LIE. The contract does not say that you'll be charged for drinking your own alcohol in any of the restaurants. After his speech he walked away without saying anything else. We sat for another 5 to 10 minutes and another manager came over. His name was Christoph. He was friendly and allowed us to explain the situation. He apologized and said that $30 charge would be removed. However, we were still charged the $30. I had to call Carnival once we returned home from the cruise to get a refund. The last morning of the cruise, we woke up to no water and malfunctioning toilets. The toilet wouldn't flush there was no water in the sink or the showers. I was forced to leave the Ship Without a shower, and had to brush my teeth with the remaining Margarita from the night before. Later we found out that there were busted pipes in some of the the rooms on our floor. I assume that's the reason for no water that morning. But it would have been nice to have received some type of notification. One thing you should know that I did not is that the Imagination ship is an older ship. It's not as big as others. There's one pool and 1 small hot tub to fit about 6 people. We never got into the pool because it was always so crowded and kids splashing everywhere. The hot tub was absolutely disgusting with hair and other things floating around. I made do with what we had. I had a great time with the friends I was with, but I will never cruise with Carnival again. They've put a very bad taste in my mouth! Read Less

I went with a large party of 30--lots of kids. The waiters and room service people were awesome. And we tipped them well. However, Carnival is cheap for many reasons. Super tacky decor. Always trying to make money off of you, whether it's interrupting you everywhere you go to take a photo, or shore excursions. Their best price guarantee is worthless, as you must have booked, found a cheaper excursion, and submitted the form 7 days prior to even getting on the boat. (There are definitely the same excursions for half the price!!!) Not only that, but they advertise this best price guarantee while you are on the ship, even though you can't possibly get any money back. I spoke to at least 10 different people about this refund and none of them told me it wasn't possible to get, as I booked our excursions on the cruise. They lied before I booked, as I booked, and after I booked. The first time they mentioned the "7 days prior" rule was three weeks after the cruise, after they directed me to four different emails. Either they are super unorganized or intentionally deceitful. Food was decent, and it's a fun, relatively cheap way to travel. However, because of their TERRIBLE customer service, I will never go with Carnival again. Read Less

First time sailing with Carnival, I was a little worried about the many poor reviews found here. But we had a great time with our kids, though I recognize where Carnival could improve. The ship itself is pretty shabby - outdated decor, messy public bathrooms. And it feels SO small compared to the larger Royal Caribbean ships we've been on - certainly more limited options for activities and entertainment. Maybe because of the smaller size, "adult" spots like the bars and casinos are intermingled with the pathway to the dining room, candy store, and more, leaving you to constantly walk with your kids through smoke and the clusters of day drinkers. (On RC, we're usually able to avoid those decks altogether.) But our cabin ended up being quite comfortable, we enjoyed the food at the buffet and dining room, my 17yo *loved* the O2 teen club, and we found plenty to do with our 10yo son (live game show, all ages comedy shows, trivia contests, water slides and pool). We were surprised at how rude our dining room waiters were, and how long it took for dinner (usually about 90 minutes), so that was a drawback. But the food was very good, and we enjoyed trying some new things (spicy alligator fritters and rabbit!). We were also surprised at the poor organization of disembarking at Catalina - wait times to get off the ship were near 2 hours at some points. I have to mention the "Fun Squad" on the ship - bless their hearts. They end up doing some of the cheesiest stuff during shows and dance parties, etc, but they are committed, and I had to give them credit. The performers in the live shows were also very impressive, given that they have to endure some horrible costumes and choreography - we watched the "Epic Rock" show and had to stifle laughs the entire time. But they sang and danced their hearts out, and they deserve kudos for that. Though this cruise lacked a lot of "polish," our family made some great memories together, and I'm glad we went! Read Less

My plan on this cruise was to be either drunk or hungover the entire time and to have my wife babysit me. My experience did not disappoint! Seriously though (and I was being serious by the way!) this is a party boat with all kinds of interesting people so if drinking, tattoos, pink hair, or piercings offend you, don't bother. If you're open minded and looking to have a good time for not a lot of money, this cruise is not bad. Food - I thought it was fine but my wife thought it was terrible. We did breakfast at the buffet every day and it was a solid mix of classic American breakfast foods (it's hard to mess up bacon and sausage!). The burger and burrito spots were also pretty good for lunch. The main dining room was alright but honestly, they should stick to more basic foods. They try to do delicacies like escargot and alligator but did a pretty poor job with those. The fried shrimp was good though! And why even bother having a formal elegant dress night when half the people on the boat probably don't own a suit? Not judging here but just seemed silly. This is a trashy booze cruise (not that there's anything wrong with that!), so why bother trying to make it elegant? Drinks - cocktails were pretty good and reasonably strong overall. A bit overpriced but not too bad for a cruise ship. Do the math on the unlimited drinks package beforehand and see if it makes sense for you and your party! Service was good at the bars around the boat. Amenities- Waterslides were pretty fun for people of all ages, mini golf course could use updating but was alright. Fun to have other games on board as well. The main pool is kind of small and gets crowded during the day with lots of drunk people and little kids (interesting mix!). The 21+ "Serenity" area was ok but too small. Two hot tubs were nice but an adults only pool would have been good. Shows - we went to the "Divas" show and walked out after 20 minutes. It was awful. Didn't try any shows after that. There was a lot of pleasant live music around the boat throughout the day though. Much more talented than the folks in the Divas production! The acoustic guitar player in the main atrium was particularly good. Ports of Call- Catalina is a cute little island but there isn't much to do. There are some quaint shops and eating/drinking spots. You can arrange watersports and activities through the boat or better yet, go to one of the many vendors yourself for a better deal. The beach area near the pier was tiny and overcrowded. No thanks! Ensenada- This was the highlight of our trip. The ATV/Wine Country tour was excellent and highly recommended. The tourist area in the town was cool too. Be sure to check out Hussongs bar for a neat atmosphere, great live music, friendly bartenders, and reasonable prices. And do haggle with the local merchants on the street! Stateroom - Spacious enough and nice porthole view. Our room steward was fantastic. Thanks Erwin! Wifi- Paid 70 dollars for TERRIBLE wifi. I couldn't even get gmail for an entire day. Wifi is never good on cruises but this was PATHETIC. I'd have asked for a refund for my last day's wifi had a I been sober. Misc. - There's a long wait to get off the boat at Catalina and a monstrosity of a line to get through customs after the cruise. Kind of annoying but not a huge problem. Staff were good overall but some were very poorly trained. A guy at the buffet literally picked up my wife's purse, commenting on the style and saying he liked it. She didn't appreciate having a random guy grab her bag, play with it, and make comments about it. People also trying to take your picture EVERYWHERE. I mean they just stick cameras in your face multiple times a day. And then you have to dig through everyone's photos if you actually wanna buy them. BAD SYSTEM and VERY ANNOYING! TLDR - it's a cheap booze cruise that's a solid value. There are lots of trashy people and kids. If you have 5 or more tattoos and are an alcoholic, you'll fit in with the crowd. The food is decent and plentiful but not gourmet at all (and the attempts at gourmet food are SAD.) Read Less

Overall, not impressed. The cabin was the worst part of the trip. It was incredibly cramped, the lights would have to sort of warm up and flicker to life on a delay, there was only one power outlet, and the bathroom was very poor. The bathroom was so cramped we had to sit mostly sideways on the toilet to use it, and the shower head was busted in two ways. It would constantly swing downward and needed to be held up half the time in use, and the head itself was partially damaged and was spewing a lot of water out of the seams. Also, the walls may as well have been paper. I could hear everything in the hall and the room next door. Every conversation, every person walking down the hall... Every time my neighbors decided to go at it in the bed... The staff was mostly fine, but guest services was not. I went looking for some dramamine and the stores were closed, so I asked guest services about some and they told me to go to the stores. I told them the stores were closed and they told me that they were open. Now, the store that sells dramamine is directly visible from the guest services booth. The gate was closed, the lights were off. I pointed this out and was still told that the store was open. It wasn't. It didn't open for another hour. I didn't use my steward, he seemed like a good guy. Food was okay. The fine dining is quality, but portions were skimpy. I ordered the grilled chicken with red potatoes. Should read Red Potato. The chicken breast was sized okay, but I got half of a typical red potato, cut in half. That's embarrassing. The same portion control was present in the buffet, with premium items like bacon, pork loin, ham, or roast beef. If you asked for any of those, you'd be doled out an extremely small portion, and servers were reluctant to keep cutting you more, though they would if pushed. The breakfast buffet was very unimpressive. Both mornings I tried it, the pancakes were cold, even when I grabbed them right after they were put out. The eggs were cold the first time, and only mildly warm the second. The butter offered is not suitable for use with pancakes or french toast as it is served chilled and is very hard to spread on food that isn't warm to begin with. Some of the amenities that are advertised are a LOT less than Carnival will lead you to believe. The Arcade especially is a total joke. It's by majority very shifty prize games to milk people for money. Very few actual games, and it's all jammed in a very cramped and uninviting space. The Carnival website leads you to believe that their arcades are actual arcades. This doesn't qualify. I've seen run down bowling alleys with more significant arcade offerings. The pool is not large or especially good. THE WI FI IS TERRIBLE. It's extremely expensive, and even with their best, fastest service, I was finding myself without connection over much of the ship, and when I did have connection, it was sloooooooooow. Sub dial up slow at times. It took 11 minutes to load a page, and it didn't even load any images from that page. It's a shameful ripoff. Overall, I don't intend to sail this ship again. Read Less

I have been on this itinerary before with the Inspiration. The ship was very clean and the staff was excellent. Our waiters made it a point to learn your name right away, the bartenders were very friendly and the staff at the pool made things fun. Our cabin Steward was always accessible and a real sweetheart (Erwin). Our Cabin was M11. Larger than most cabins on the ship due to its location. We had two portholes and lots of room. We ate in the main dining room most nights and in the MDR for breakfast. All were very good. They did seem to forget something at each meal but not enough to be annoying. We did Chefs Dinner on the last night. I would highly recommend it!! Food was excellent and it was a great way to get to know a bit about behind the scenes. The comedian was very funny and the musicians were great. We did not get a chance to see a show though. We did not get off in Catalina but we did in Ensenada. We took a private tour there ($20) and had a blast. Food was great down there, country side was pretty. It was a great day! Read Less

I believe my experience on the 3 day Carnival Imagination (June 21-June 24 '18) was shaped by my previous experience on the 7 day Carnival Splendor (Feb 24- March 3 '18). My first experience set the bar because I honestly had an amazing time. Everything was great minus a couple things but not enough to change my view of the trip/experience. However, sailing on the Imagination was a nightmare and has led me to rethink any future trips with this cruise company. I will also express to my colleagues and friends my experience in hopes of saving them money and agony of a sub-par experience. The cruise line can truly benefit from having a strong level of consistency and continuity. I endured the following issues on my most recent cruise; as again this was a total opposite experience than my last sailing with carnival: 1. My stateroom was awful. Not cleaned properly and they put the third bed under a table you could not stretch your legs out underneath unless you were 50lbs. The bathroom was not properly cleaned. There were urine stains all over the toilet seat/toilet and shower had soap scum/dirt on the shower floor which can be removed if cleaned properly. ( I used personal gloves, bleach wipes and Clorox spray to clean it properly for my personal use) 2. The food selection at the buffet was very slim and was soggy and cold when being served during dining hours. Hours of the very few food places available where not long enough. 3. The staff aboard the ship was not pleasant nor eager to assist. They presented poor attitudes and an unwillingness to go the extra mile to ensure guest are happy. 4. They didn't allow realistic time frame for activities and games. Also, games were ran by staff who appear to not be engaged with a "I just want to get this over with attitude." They would rush through games and tell us that time is running out so either we can go faster or they would just have to stop the game when the 30 mins was up. (On the Splendor we did not have time restraints, everyone was able to enjoy the game and see it through. Staff was patient on the Splendor) 5. The barista at the coffee cart was very inflexible and unable to provide the customer service required to meet the needs of the patrons. When asked to make certain simple drinks that were being described, the barista responded with "This is not Starbucks". All the patron asked for was a mocha. That requires espresso (which they have), chocolate sauce (which they have), milk (which they have), and whipped cream (which they have). How hard is that. 6. My stateroom did not have a room service menu and after three calls it was not delivered and had not been delivered by the end of the trip. 7. The television in my stateroom did not receive channels that were clear and functioning. Also the remote did not work and after several attempts the staff was unable to sync a remote to the television for late night viewing. 8. The formal dining area lacked the attention and service, again that I received on the Splendor. They served food that was cold and after each course failed to completely clear the table. There were crumbs, sauces and things all over the table but they continued to drop plate after plate. When they delivered the dessert menu, no one came back to take my order but instead brought me whatever they felt they wanted to bring. 9. It was very hard to communicate with a lot of the staff as a lot of the staff was not fluent in English. Repeating words like Yes and No is not a form of communication that is effective nor efficient. 10. The sewer smell throughout this vessel was horrific. I found myself heaving every time I arrived on U deck and in some areas throughout the ship. 11. During sail away they did not have the Sail Away Party on the Lido deck. It was dry and boring. No entertainment coordinator or hype man to get the crowd going. I could go on but I am tired. Will try booking with Princess or Norwegian next. This cruise is like a yellow taxi ride.; overpriced with bad service. Read Less
